Etsy has created a very popular marketplace for vintage and antiques. For years I've recommended antique sellers take advantage of the massive following this platform has. But as with other sales venues, like antique booths and eBay, it can be tricky to establish what sells best there. Today I'm going to share specifics about six categories of items that shoppers can't get enough of from my Etsy shop in 2024. These include ironstone, flower frogs, textiles, Christmas decorations, handwritten recipe books, and crocks. The post What’s HOT in Etsy Vintage Shops [2024] appeared first on Adirondack ..read more

If you have never heard of paper punch embroidery, you're not alone. This somewhat obscure craft was extremely popular during the Victorian era (1837-1901). Women and children both took to this form of handwork in the thousands, and examples can be found across America. Once a valued antique, its popularity as a collectible peeked in the last quarter of the 20th century. However, enthusiastic collectors continue to purchase items, though at lower prices than in the past. The post What is Paper Punch Embroidery?
